Grandma, I can’t believe you’re gone. You weren’t just my great grandma, but like a mom to me. You did so much for me while growing up. I remember you used to pick me up from school and you would be standing outside holding your wallet with your hands folded every day waiting for me, now that I think about it, it was the cutest thing. I remember every once in a while we would go get something to eat after school, but we could never go through the drive thru because you would always say you didn’t know how lol. Even as I got older it was my absolute favorite to come stay the night with you and Grandad. You guys always had the good stuff! Sweet tea and chocolate cake! Plus much more haha! Your favorite thing to do besides read was to buy scratchers and I’ll never forget how you would buy us all scratchers, and you would win just to let us grandkids have the winnings. I loved being able to spend these last 3 years living with you. Seeing you every day meant everything to me. Not having you here is extremely hard. I miss seeing you sitting in your chair at the table reading your books, or watching The Price is Right and Ellen every day. I’ll miss hearing you tell me “someone is all prettied up, where are you off too?”. You sure always knew how to make me feel special. Going to the store isn’t the same anymore. Seeing you so excited to see all what we bought was the best. I’m just so glad you got to meet Cole, you loved him so much. I’ll miss showing you his cute outfits he’s wearing every day. I wish he would of got to know you. You were truly such a special Grandma. I’ll be sure to keep your chocolate pie tradition alive. I’ll make you proud as we take care of your house. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have always done for me and for Aj, Cole and I. We miss you terribly. So does Abbey and Rocky. We love you Grandma. I hope you’re pain free and happy with Grandad now. Until we meet again Grandma. 💕💜💕

I'm so lucky to have shared you with my girl's & they got to enjoy their childhood growing up spending time with you just like I did. I love you & miss you so very much that my heart is broken.💔 Today is your wedding Anniversary and you & Grandad are finally back together again. My life will never be the same without you here love you more my special Grandma.
